Thick, they bounced off of a tree from about 5 yards at a high velocity.
I don't see why everyone is saying these balls are terrible. Granted they aren't as good as you could buy but for the price they work fine. They were thick and bounced off a tree and when i tried throwing afew at a brick wall they didnt break at first. The are the thickest balls ive ever played with : ) If you can't get to a field to buy paint and all thats around you is a sporting goodsstore, most places have em so give em a shot. But if you do play a quick outlaw game with them youll find that they bouce off of your opponent to so that does get annoying, FAST.
Not as bad as everybody says they are. Work fine only chopped one of 1,000. Only problem is that they had trouble breaking at all.

All in all im pretty satisfied with El Tigers. They have good fill and break pretty consistantly (on target, not in gun) I havent had 1 break in my barrel yet. The only problem Ive had with them is accuracy. As opposed to marbs, tigers tend to drop to suddenly. Out of a test between marbs and tigers, (10 ball test) 9 out of the 10 marbs shot straight and accurately. 5 out of 10 tigers shot accuratly.

Halo B hopper
I payed quite a bit of money for these paintballs. When I got to the field then worked for awhile but the accuracy wasn't as great as I expected. The balls had enough curve to get me hit especially when I had clear shots. The color is nice though.
I suggest finding better paint just because this paint is questionable and the price is a little high. Do a little research or test some other types of paints out and figure which ones you like.
Medium bore barrel
Works just fine with my teardrop
Price (kind of)
Through work I was able to get a whole bunch of PMI and RPS balls for dirt cheap. So I got a couple cases of marbs and tigres. Everyone knows about marbs so there was no need to test them. I broke open a case of tigres and at first glance I laughed my head of cause it looked like Tony the Tiger decided to get into paintball. I had no idea they would be striped like that, I thought they were going to look like marbs but orange and black instead of green and black. Anyways...... I unloaded the whole case on some poor targets and the balls flew great. A few broke but it was all my fault since I started shooting too fast, stupid me was using a gravity hopper since I ran out of batteries (mental note: always, always keep plenty of 9v's in my bag) For a comparison I mixed some marbs into my hopper and as I shot I couldn't tell the difference of the balls except for the streaking colors.
From now on I'm just going to shoot tigres. They are a little cheaper than marbs and work just as great. I know people still don't like paying this much for paint so I'm going to give them a 8. But Tony did a fine job on these balls, "They're Gr-r-reat!"

14 inch Teardrop
I like the orange fill
Not very much fill
Ok , i got these thinking they would be good quality because it is made by RPS. Boy, was I wrong. I shot at some tress and even though the fill is orange you could barely see where it hit! I was like 15 ft. away. The fill spreads out and it's hard to see. They are fairly accurate though. These paintballs look really sweet. I love the tiger stripe stuff. I also chopped a few too, more than I usually do. They also broke a lot upon exiting my gun.
Get something else, you can get better paint for a better price.

Accurate, accurate, accurate!!
Best ball that I have used. An accurate ball, very straight. To me that matter more than anything. Plus I didn't break a ball, but I rarely do with any type of ball. The color is nice, its not too bright but you can still see it fly and it marks nice. The only part I didn't like is the price, which for the value really isn't bad, it's actually good. I've used more expensive balls but really didn't see much of a gain over these. I paid $30 for 1000, I'm used to $40 for 2000.
Great ball. A little expensive for the weekend warrior. You can get cheaper but I haven't seen anything better than these near the price. I'll buy them again just cause I save by shooting less, a good straight, round, accurate ball that marks well.
Tippmann 98 Custom
14inch J&J Performance Barrel
custom pen trigger spring
32 Degrees front bolt
Custom Full auto trigger jod (29 balls a second)
J&J Performance 14inch ceramic
there $60 a case
These are the best paintballs I have ever used. I am a person who dosent use that many paintballs in a game ( which is surprising consider 29 balls a second) so i can afford these awesome balls. They are much beter than all of the balls listed above. Buy em and shoot only the very best. You will be amzed at the accuracy and the consistency of these balls
Get these paintballs if you want only the best paint on the market

3 - Bright in color
4 - Looks awesome
1 - Price
2 - Hard to find in stores
I don't know if I have really shot a better paintball. These thinks are wicked. I shoot 2000 and not one broke. I was truley amazed. These paintballs are excellent for tournaments and for woodsball because of its thick neon orange fill. These paintballs do not bounce. They break on impact.
Overall, I think these paintballs are great. For the best results, try shooting them out of a small-medium bore barrel like a boomy or freak. These really are great paintballs.
Obvious breaks, cool shell, accurate (low curve), does not break in gun or barrel
The balls are pricy -- about 70 dollars per case (2000)
The balls are very well madee, with all the different caracteristics that you would want in your paintball. They have a tough shell that still breaks every time on the target, great accuracy, along with the durability to not break inside your gun. The balls are top of the line. You will not regret buying them, even if they are alittle expensive.
Good paint. The fill, the size, the shape, the color is all perfect. Go get some today.
